CHENNAI, Nov 18 (Agencies): Days after raids at Jaya TV and family members of jailed AIADMK party leader VK Sasikala, Income Tax sleuths today conducted searches in the office block of the Poes Garden residence of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, a senior official said.

Following inputs, a search operation was launched in the office block and a room used by jailed and deposed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala at "Veda Nilayam," the Poes Garden residence.

Jayalalithaa's long-time aide, Sasikala, had continued to live in this house after Jayalalithaa's death last December till she was sent to jail by the Supreme Court in a corruption case.

Income tax department sources indicated the raids were carried out after inputs that electronic storage devices were being clandestinely moved out of the premises.

"We have not searched the entire Poes Garden premises. Our team went at 9 pm and only Poongundran's room, records room and other room used by Sasikala were searched," the top Income Tax official told agencies. Poongundran had served as an aide of the former chief minister. The seizure included a laptop and the search would be concluded soon, he added.

Today's search comes days after multi-city searches in 187 locations linked to ten income tax assesse groups which include those linked to Sasikala, her kin and some associates.
